The Final Sword of Kaigen Cover Art is here! (ARCs available)

THE FINAL COVER DESIGN IS HERE!

SoK Cover 10-30-18 Half

During November, I will be sending a limited number of advanced reader copies of The Sword of Kaigen (in both PDF and paperback form) to readers interested in providing early reviews.

As of today, I am accepting ARC requests at officialtheonite@gmail.com!

Stuff to know about ARC requests:

  • Due to shipping costs, I am not able to send paperbacks outside the US. However, I am more than happy to send PDFs to international readers (I know, I hate it too, and I’m sorry)
  • Also due to shipping costs, I have a VERY limited number of paperbacks available. If it is at all possible for you to read the book in PDF form, please let me know (it will increase your likelihood of being added to the ARC team).
  • Please feel free to include links to any social media accounts (i. e. Goodreads, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.) where you typically post reviews.

Any further questions? Hit me up at officialtheonite@gmail.com.

More ‘Sword of Kaigen’ Art!

Hello Dear Readers!

M. L. Wang here, and today I want to share some new SoK artwork from the wonderful Tara Spruit (Taratjah). I’ve always loved this artist’s warm, expressive style, so I was ecstatic to have the chance to commission these pieces.

Tara Spruit has also done wonderful art based on other fantasy series such as Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn and Stormlight Archive, Sarah J. Maas’ Throne of Glass, and Marissa Meyers’ Lunar Chronicles. If you enjoy fantasy books, I highly recommend checking out her blog and her store.

This art will eventually be part of prize packages in my Sword of Kaigen pre-order giveaway.

The Sword of Kaigen Updates – Now on Goodreads!

Hello Dear Readers!

M. L. Wang here with some quick SoK updates.

First, I’m delighted to let you all know that The Sword of Kaigen is now on Goodreads! If you use Goodreads, be sure to add it to your ‘to-read’ shelf and vote for it on the ‘Fantasy Releases of February 2019,’ ‘Asian Fantasy & Science Fiction,’ and ‘Can’t Wait Books of 2019‘ lists.

Next, I want to share some photos of the first proof copy of The Sword of Kaigen, which arrived in the mail yesterday.

There’s still a lot of tweaking I want to do, but I can now confidently say that these books are going to look fantastic! (Kudos to the printing service for finally figuring out how to render a cover image without doing all kinds of weird things to the saturation; that’s new)

Last, here are some photos of the first set of SoK art prints to arrive. Apologies for the lousy lighting. The sun was gone. (Art by Coralie Jubénot, printed with permission)

These prints will eventually be part of prize packages in my SoK pre-order giveaway.

New SoK Art by Merwild

A big thanks to @merwild (Coralie ‘Coco’ Jubenot) for this stunning commissioned artwork of Misaki and Takeru from The Sword of Kaigen. If for some strange reason you don’t already follow this incredible artist, now would be a great time to do so.

I may be giving away prints of this artwork closer to SoK’s release on February 19th of 2019.

Maps of SoK

Hello again, Dear Readers!

I wanted to share some of the maps I’ve been working on to go inside The Sword of Kaigen (coming February 19th, 2019).

If you’ve read the Theonite books, this first map probably looks familiar. Not wanting to reuse the same Yammanka-style map of Duna from Theonite: Orbit, I made some changes, added paper texture, and worked in some Japanese design motifs to create this:

Kaigenese Style Map of Duna Sepia.jpg

This second map is brand new, allowing the reader to keep track of the Kaigenese cities and provinces mentioned in the book.
